romney says he's pro-life but doesn't intend to do anything that's pro-life. ryan says he's pro-life and means it. he wants to dump roe v wade. he and his cohorts would proceed to ban it in every sate they could closing abortion rights down into as few states as possible. in this way they would make the banning of abortion a matter of geography. the more states they could get to pass a ban, the further a woman would have to travel to have one. presumably abortion would be safe and legal in coastal states like new york and california. live in the middle, however, and you'd have to leave not just your town and state but maybe the entire region to get to a state where your decision would be respected. this is ryan's plan for american women. but he doesn't stop there. he's also a co-sponsor of the personhood bill that would declare a fertilized human egg a person with all the 14th amendment requirements of life, liberty, and property as well. it would not just outlaw abortion, it would make it murder. joining me to absorb those facts are alex wagner and ron reagan, author and radio

romney and paul ryan have very, very extreme positions on women's reproductive rights, and to sort of book end or to just end -- give it like five to ten minutes in what is the only vice presidential debate i think was really shortchanging the issue. that said, if paul -- sorry, if joe biden drew blood last night, i thought it was on this issue in particular. this is not an issue of contraception coverage. these aren't nuanced positions on, you know, the catholic church and reproduction. this is fundamentally the question of whether women have the right to choose, and paul ryan could not answer the question, and to many, many women from both sides of the aisle, this is something that you vote on. i mean, this is not a subtle sort of tax policy nuance. this is about having the choice to have an abortion and the dialogue that goes on between a woman and her doctor. and it was clear that the romney/ryan ticket is in a place that the obama/biden ticket is not. >> well, you made a point that i like to make. we can argue about a lot of issues, as i said. there were a lot of issues debate

investigations. do you feel as po the romney campaign -- romney-ryan -- walks a fine line here between here are the tragic deaths of four americans, versus putting it out on there the stump? >> vice president biden directly contradicted the sworn testimony of the state department in the debate the other night. that led to another round of kind of nuancing by the white house. >> let me ask you a question about this. >> it's a national security question here, which is, you know, when -- why would the administration and the president -- the president two weeks after these attacks on september 11 which resulted in the first -- the assassination of an ambassador, the first in 33 years, and it was known at this point by various accounts that it was a premeditated attack, you know, six times in the united nations speech talked about this youtube video and never said anything about it being a terrorist attack. >> do you think he was lying? i'm trying to figure out what you all are saying. >> there are inconsistencies here, and i think as americans we deserve to know what really happened going into
